2 1/2 yr old goes a little all the time

Hi all...my son is going to be 2 1/2 in a couple of weeks. He has been interested in the potty for about 4 months; I ask him if he wants to go about once an hour, but I don't force it. I'm letting him set the pace, and we aren't in a hurry.

The only issue is that he goes "pee-pee" a little at a time, all the time. For example, he'll go on the potty, get a sticker and we jump around all excited. Then he pees a little in his pull-up, like, 15 minutes later. Then a little on the potty before snack...then again a little in his pull-up in another 15 minutes. We could go on like this all day! Am I doing something wrong? He does drink quite a bit of water, as we live in Arizona and it's getting really hot here, but maybe he doesn't really feel when he has to go? Or I'm forcing him on the potty?

My son is 3 years old and did the same thing when we first began potty training about a month ago. I would even set the timer for every 15 minutes and told him the bell meant it was time to try to use the potty. The first week or so was quite frustrating, but then he began to hold it in a little and now he goes less often, and more at a time.

With my little girl who is 2 1/2 just got fully potty trainined 1 month ago.We where using pulls up for a whlie and found that potty training was not working really well.My mother in law told me to use regular underware and to put pasltic underware over.With in a week my little one was potty trained. Thanks to my mother in law.I find that pull ups are like a dipers and it takes longer for childern to potty trained and the cost for pull ups are alot of money.Hopefuly this would help you out.Happy Potty training:)

I dont think you are doing anything wrong. It's him getting used to the idea of the potty and the fact that he is going on the potty at all is a really good sign in my opinion. My daughter is 21/2 as well and she will tell me she has to pee on the potty and she will go but she will not poop on the potty. I dont know if she is scared or what. I just am happy with the fact she is going on the potty at all and I know in her own time she will accomplish doing both on the potty and more often.

What I do when my boys go potty, I tell them to "make sure you get it all out" that way they try and push it all out. It works for them. Wouldn't hurt to give it a try.
